It is important to know how to understand statistics so that we can make the proper judgments when a person presents us with an argument backed by data. Data are numbers with a context. We must always keep the meaning of our data in mind.
Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation and organization of data. It deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.
